“ But you must, by all means, continue your study of the · Memoirs of Dalrymple,' which contain very curious information, and will give you very important hints respecting the characters and views, both of the Duke of York, the King (Charles II.) and the popular leaders."

1814 Priced, 1840, J. Bohn, £4. 48 ; 1844, White, £3, 108. " This polished little auto-biographical gem was read in all circles, and admired by critics of every description. Nor were the Letters, and especially the Journal of Gibbon's Studies, considered to be less commendable. The latter is indeed a valuable legacy bequeathed to posterity. Bating the well-known prejudices of the author, which are here comparatively softened and subdued, I know of nothing more inviting to perusal-more seductive to all the honourable objects of intellectual cultivation and gratification—than this ‘Journal.' It makes us in love with our study and our books; and, situated as was Gibbon's library, overlooking a portion of the Lake of Geneva, one can hardly conceive any earthly luxury, to an enlarged mind like his, to bave been more complete. Indeed, Gibbon occasionally describes himself as marching into his LIBRARY, of a bright beauteousmorning, to handle his Byzantine Historians, with all the zest and activity of an horticulturist into his hot-house-to cut his black Antigua pine, or gather his favourite nectarine, yet impearled with the early dews of a hot house. The author of "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,' seems to revel in the intellectual banquet placed before him ; and indeed Nature, which, from bodily infirmities, denied Gibbon the luxuries of out of door exercise, seems to have abundantly compensated this defect, by enduing him with a hale, active, and comprehensive mind, which was scarcely sensible of fatigue.”—Dibdin. 96 GOUGH'S SEPULCHRAL MONUMENTS in Great Britain, applied to illustrate

It is full, valuable, and a sort of substitute in the absence of all other writers. Tindal is not unworthy to be the successor of Rapin ; equally diligent and copious, with the same attachment to the best interests of Englishmen, and, like his predecessor, a sort of general substitute in the absence of otherwriters.”—Prof. Smyth. 137 RAY (J.)
